Torso mutant -Tomb Raider 1996 by Kim-san Torso mutant -Tomb Raider 1996 by Kim-san
Anyone remember this guy!?
I remember well playing Tomb Raider on the Ps1
back in the days, reaching the final level called the
great pyramid and seeing this unfinished creature
falling out of a womb like egg.
It took forever to kill it and the battlefield was very small.

Seeing this today, it still gives me the creeps!
The remake was not so good, nothing seemed
as scary as the original.
Watch this video of the "final" boss : [link] - the music is outstanding,creepy and intense!

On my top 6 scary games of all time, this game is a solid nr. 3! The 1rst beeing Resident Evil 1 (gamecube remake) nr. 2 - Silent Hill 2. nr3. Tomb Raider nr. 4 - Resident Evil 2 (ps1 and N64) nr. 5 - System shock and nr. 6 - D

Anyways! Here is my drawing of the scaryest boss ever -
Torso mutant from Tomb Raider.

Tomb Raider by Eidos.
Drawing by me.

This is pure awesome. I remember this boss from the first Tomb raider when I was a kid. He was much better in the first game. The redesign in Anniversary just looked stupid. They shouldn't go back and mess with things. Great work. :-)

when you think about, the scariest aspect about the abomination is that it has the bare minimum of flesh and muscle to function right. and plus, in reality, if muscles and nerves went uncovered like that, it would feel like millions of tiny swords stabbing you. :iconsadfaceplz:

In all seriousness, I love it. There isn't enough fan art of the villains and bosses from the Tomb Raider games.

It's BUBBA!! :dummy: I named him...most of the main bosses got nick named... Barney (the t-rex) and E.T.-Me-Two (we thought clone lara looked like E.T. so my friend and I nick named her that) were a few others. Ohhh good times... xD

Ooooo awesome, I really like the expression on his face. ((Even though he is missing his lower jaw XD))
I always loved the tomb raider setting, I've played the newer games but the only old game I got is number two and it's way too hard for me.
Doesn't really help with how the pixels have aged over the years and how clunky it can be without the dualshock. ;_;
But I still really love the setting and hated having to kill the tiger in the great wall.

I have played some of the new ones, but prefer the old for the
atmosphere and scares, especially nr 1.
Thanks for the feedback! ^^

So awesome! :wow:
This is how he should have looked in Anniversary, then he might have actually scared me! :iconicantbelieveitplz::iconlefthumbsupplz:

I've finally played TR1 and TR2 only a few years ago (as I started back then with TR3) so I knew about him very well when I finally got to him, but he still scared me... Unfortunately(?) not that much if I didn't expect him... =P

You mean in the game?
nah, I just laughed when I saw it,
I got really dissapointed.
The old one has that non human look and
moves more creepy, the new one was like resident
evil 5, totally failure.

"Seeing this today, it still gives me the creeps"

So very true.:)


Have you ever gone back to play TR1?
If not you must...once you get use to the slow run etc...you will still get that feeling of-something is going to jump AT me around this next corner.:eyepopping:

I played it not so long ago, yes, it still scares me, there is something
with the quietness and stiff movements, the darkness makes things look endlessly
and wast. There is also something special about those blocky visuals and pixelated
textures that just dont gets the same with new remakes : )

100% agree.
:-)

And the feeling of being very alone.

Everything changed for me - I think with Angel of Darkness.

I will play the new ones but draw the line at the new Lara Croft game...Light of "something"
:-?

Yay! Finally something in Art of Tomb Raider that isn't Lara, Doppelganger, or Trent!
And it looks awesome, too!

I think your right. I loved TR: Anniversary, but the face off against the mutant at the end was ho-hum. Maybe it it was the fact that you had to do those stupid trigger attacks to knock it off instead of just shooting it. I got so tired of trying to climb that central chamber just to reach the Scion, too!

Yeah, trigger attacks and too much action
makes games like that less scary.
Same with resident evil, the 4th installment
had some creepy moments but 5 is just plain action.
